More Vintage Corrie
"Oh Coronation Street's alright. Mind, there's some you'll have to watch."
The first five minutes of the first episode ever broadcast. Florie Lindley has just taken over the corner shop after recently arriving to the street. Elsie and Dennis Tanner are arguing over money and local golden boy Ken Barlow is sitting down to his tea. It's funny how the actors specifically refer to the residents and their house number as a way of setting us up for their introduction.
"I think you want your head examining. Mind, that's just my opinion of course."
Annie and Jack Walker, owners of the Rover's.
"...foul-mouthed, beer-swilling moron like you!"
Aw, it's Ken Barlow's first bar fight. Sadly, it does not go well for him. He hasn't even hit the ground and they're already rolling the credits.
